The West Suburban Chamber of Commerce and Industry Foundation joins forces for a ninth year with Lyons Township High School to offer a community recycling opportunity.

Between 8 a.m. and noon on May 17, electronics and common metal household items can be dropped off at the south end of the South Campus of Lyons Township High School, 4900 S. Willow Springs Road, Western Springs. Computer equipment will be data cleared to Department of Defense standards and some items will be refurbished for use by local nonprofit organizations. Although televisions will not be collected this year, acceptable electronics include VCR and DVD players and recorders, toasters, fax machines and scanners, desktop printers, keyboards, computer mice and cables, portable digital music players, PDAs, video game consoles, digital converter boxes, satellite receivers, small scale servers, cell phones, brass fittings, bronze, and copper pipe.

To the north of the electronics recycling area, on the high school’s circular drive, used eyeglasses will be accepted for Kiwanis. The Working Bikes organization will accept used bicycles. Used clothing and textile scraps will be accepted for recycling by Chicago Textile Recycling. School and Community Assistance for Recycling Education will accept cork, school supplies and books. Republic Bank will provide document shredding and subsequent recycling.

This collaborative recycling endeavor provides, for another year, increased opportunities for west suburban residents and businesses to make mindful disposal choices for their out-of-use items. Last year’s recycling event provided free and easy recycling service to around 500 area families and businesses, collecting more than 50,000 pounds of recyclables.
